A bit like Knytt cross Shadow of the Colossus. Which I respect. But it makes me a bit like; 'Oh man, I've done this before.'
Still good, though!
Knytt + Shadow of the Colossus was what I had in mind when I came up with the idea (plus more metroidvania stuff like Robot Wants...). I borrowed enough from them that I can understand why it might be a little too familiar!
The difficulty curve is immense, and, after a while I found myself only using Fire Wizards because they were the only ones with splash damage. Plus it was annoying that the upgrades for the towers only upgraded the damage, because the fact that you could only put the towers in set places meant that it was difficult to make good use of their ranges.
On the plus does, it does look nice, and it's fun despite being a little too hard.
Since this game also acts as a test to get invited to the Packed factory, we couldn't make it easy. That said, I think given some time and a bit of strategic thinking most people will be able to win the game.
As for upgrades only upgrading damage - you're completely right. I'm not a master at balancing tower defense games and creating a game with balanced upgrades that include range, fire rate, damage and special abilities was just too much for me. I'm sure other Packed users will do better in the future.
Good luck winning it using only fire wizards though - don't think that is possible :)
What an original idea! I love it! Really unusual and fun.
I look forward to seeing more stuff like this! Don't run out of brilliant ideas!
Well, just.. wow!
I actually have to give this five stars. Because it does exactly what a game is supposed to do. Which is be really, really fun! It's rare to find a game on Newgrounds which is this enjoyable to play.
The controls are simple, the graphics are effective, it's funny, original, and overall brilliant! I have no criticism! It even ended before it got boring.
I absolutely loved it.
I'm not into this kind of thing, really.. but it was addictive! Finally finished it after lots of mistakes. :P I'm glad you didn't put any 'action' in it, as people have been looking for, it seems. It was good without it. I'd like to suggest perhaps getting some more music for it. Maybe a song for each area?
Other than that, it's very well done. I enjoyed it.
Survived the day, saved my wife, A tactics and A+ compassion. Pretty proud of myself. :)
Well, this is obviously the greatest game ever made.
I have no criticisms. This is perfect as it is.
Don't get me wrong, I like arty games, but this seems a bit simple. Like you didn't put enough effort into the actual programming, just making it look nice.
Some of the sounds loop badly, the controls are a tad.. unrealistic, and the collision detection isn't great in places (No, I'm not stupid enough to think the bit where you fall through the platforms isn't deliberate. I'm talking about -other- platforms).
Other than that, it's a nice game. It looks good, there's some good ideas going on, and the plot is decent enough.
If you could work on what I mentioned, you could make this game a much more fantastic piece than it is.
I love how using the healing breath on the dead turns them into zombies. :)
Amazing game, all in all. I adore the choice and the replayability.
Maybe you could come back to it one day and do something creative with the graphics? I do like them as they are, but it would be interesting to see some 'proper' animation and the like.
No matter, though. It's still amazing.
The voice acting is fantastic. It's challenging, too. I like.
I love you, luka.
Wonderful game. So addictive, and the music is fantastic!
